Beer #9: Butte Creek Organic India Pale Ale

Here's one you can skip if you haven't tried it. The reviews on BeerAdvocate generally seem to be in favor of this beer, but I have to say that it sort of sucks. Entirely too overboard on the hops. Now, I like an IPA just like the next guy, but as also stated by Chris, I don't want to taste a glass full of lawn clippings.

Craziness of the hops aside, the beer looks good when poured and smells nice. The taste makes you jump out of your chair. If that's your thing, this might be a beer for you.

As for the organic aspect, I don't really know how to test that out since I can't get a non-organic Butte Creek IPA.

I've completed a week or so on this course of trying 100 beers in the next 100 days. Let's see what I've done so far:

Countries:
  • United States: 2
  • Germany: 1
  • Denmark: 1
  • Japan: 2
  • Belgium: 2
  • Australia: 1
Styles:
  • IPA: 1
  • Hefeweizen: 1
  • Belgian triple: 1
  • Belgian other: 1
  • Japan boringness: 2
  • Australian interestingness: 1
  • Denmark whatever: 1
  • German ordinary: 1
This is not a scientific project.
